Here we have an incomplete (!) list of scholarships, grants, and other opportunities to seek funding in Germany and abroad. It is a random list for different stages of your academic career for different projects (fieldwork, PhD or PostDoc projects, starting your own group …). That could mean that you are only in part eligible to apply, so please check for yourself for eligibility, deadlines etc.

Let us know what we could list here โ€“ we are just an e-mail away!

Disclaimer: We know there is a bias as we don’t cover all regions of the world! Most items are on the list from people talking about their own experiences.

Our list evolved from attending a workshop on Funding Options at EGU2022 and the Early Career workshop of the EU Horizon 2020 project TiPACCs.
